Spotify is one of the best when it comes to music streaming services. It has over 35 million songs and more than 70 million users on the premium plan. Apart from that, there are a million others who are using the free version. However, Spotify also comes with a few constraints. Spotify music is DRM protected so you cannot play it on all your devices like basic MP3 players. Well, not really! This is where you can make use of a Spotify Music Converter software similar to the one we have covered here.
AudFree Spotify Music Converter makes it possible to download tracks for offline use in all the popular audio formats. It not only helps in downloading the music but also strips off the DRM from the songs so that you can enjoy them on all your devices without any limitation. Now then, let’s dive into the details, shall we?
Important: We strongly recommend you to make use of this software only for legitimate and personal purposes. At TechUntold we don’t promote or accept piracy and we take no responsibility if you do so.
How To Use AudFree Spotify Music Converter?
The software is available for both Windows and Mac. For this review, we are using the Windows version. It also has a FREE trial that comes with limits of course. You can only convert only 1 minute of a song with the free version. If you want to convert the complete file then you will have to upgrade to the premium version.
So, go ahead and get it from their official website and follow the steps below.
1. Open the software after successful installation. Copy the song link from the Spotify app and paste it in the search bar at the top.
2. Next, click on the + icon next to it to load the track in the software. It might take a few seconds depending on the song length and your internet speed.
3. When the song is loaded click on Convert.
The software will prompt you to play that particular song on Spotify. Well, this is pretty important for the conversion to start.
4. As soon as you play the song, the software will start converting and downloading the track.
5. After the successful conversion, one of the below icons showing the list of converted songs will show a notification badge. Click on it to view the songs list.
In order to directly go to the converted songs on your PC click on the folder icon to the left of downloaded songs list icon. You will be able to see all the downloaded songs from this software there.
If you wish you can also change the location of the downloaded files on your PC. It can easily be done by clicking on the 3 dots icon and selecting the desired location, path or folder.
Download Spotify Songs In Popular Formats
AudFree Spotify Music Converter lets you save songs, playlists or albums from Spotify on your PC for offline use. There is no loss in the audio quality and you can even choose the output audio properties from the Settings.
You can select from popular formats like MP3, WAV, AAC, FLAC, M4A, M4B for the converted file. Moreover, you can also set the bit rate and sample rate of the downloaded song.
Even the premium Spotify users cannot listen to the Spotify songs on all their devices. It’s because they are DRM encrypted so you can only listen to them on a limited number of devices. This is where this software is amazing. Apart from converting and downloading the songs it also removes the DRM from the songs allowing you to play on any of your music players or devices.
Let us remind you again that DRM removal can be illegal if done with wrong intentions. Here at TechUntold we don’t promote or accept any unethical practices. You can read all about DRM removal and its legalities here.
Ease Of Use
AudFree Spotify Music converter intuitive GUI makes it easy to use for anyone really. All you have to do is give the song link as the input to the software and it does the rest of the job for you. It also has useful prompts wherever required for its successful operation.
It is possible to download Spotify playlists, albums or songs in a batch by pasting their link in the same way as we did for an individual song. You only have to play the first song in the batch download list and the software will start downloading all the songs in the playlist/album.
Now, let’s take a look at its pros and cons.
- A free trial version which actually lets you try out the software features
- Metadata like ID3 tags containing artist, title, album name etc. of the Spotify songs is preserved
- Slow Conversion Speed – The conversion and download will at least take the time of the song length
- Batch Download is not up to the mark – If you fail to play the first song in the playlist/album then download is not proper
